"No love, no glory
No hero in her sky" perhaps. haha

"I get the feeling you're bored with me" would be nice as well

It's been awesome hearing everybodys response. Here's mine (I think)

Quand elle joue avec moi,
et je pense que je l'aime de fois


It's just perfect for how I'm feeling but that is most likely just teenage hormones

Talking that's me

dogs

she lives with an orange tree and a girl that does yoga
she picks the dead ones from the ground when we come over
and she gives i get without giving anything to me
like a morning sun
like a morning
like a morning sun
like a good good morning sun
the girl that does yoga
when we come over
the girl that does yoga

he lives in a little house on the side of a little hill
picks the litter from the ground, litter little brother spills
he gives i get without giving anything to me
and the dogs they run
and the dogs they
and the dogs they run
in the good good morning sun
side of a little hill
litter little brother spills
side of a little hill

and she's always dressed in white
she's like an angel man she burns my eyes
when she turns she pulls a smile
we drive her 'round man she drives us wild
and she moves like a little girl
i become a child man she moves my world
and she gets splashed in paint and turns away and leaves me standing...

she lives with an orange tree and a girl that does yoga
got a wolf to keep her warm when he comes over
she gives he gets without giving anything to see
and the day it ends
and the day it
and the day it ends
and there's no need for me
with a girl that does yoga
when we come over
with a girl that does yoga

'waking up without you is like drinking from an empty cup'

'It's not that we're scared
It's just that it's delicate'

'I remember it well
The first time that I saw
Your head around the door
'Cause mine stopped working'

Default Damien Line?

I look to my Eskimo friend
When I'm Down Down Down

1st time I heard that, I shuddered and wept,
Not got tearful,
Not shivered,
Not got wistful, I wept.

Syd Barrett, frozen in a moment of childhood vs ugly.
Childheart, Wide Eyed Boy singing Jugband Blues....then Dark Globe

Damien unknowingly kicked open a couple doors I thought I had bricked over...

I look to my Eskimo friend
When I'm Down Down Down

Go figure, I'm a Stoner...I hear and remember Everything

Walk in Peace.

my top 3. (his lyrics are too great to choose just one line)
''Loving is fine if it's not in your mind''

''And if I'm low, can I drown in this rain? I guess I'm no good, I guess I'm insane''

''Though I stand with this rain on my back but it feels so damn good..
To belong''

Well, I have a few, on both ends.

This is how I feel nowdays, as if she were talking to me. She being whomever I'm with:
"You stick your probe in further but you're still not pleased and if there's someplace else you'd rather be then go."

And this goes out to someone, well, it's whatever, I feel like this is something she knows is something she can relate to:
"So go play with your piano, write a mediocre song about the shell of mediocrity, and pretend there's nothing wrong."

A sad, but true feeling:
"You flood her with water
When she shows her flame
And you expect her to get up
And feel the same
"

God, this one is self explanitory, really:
" If you're gonna stay
Don't just say it
Stay, really stay
"

One last one:
" Is there not enough light?
Or do you just not see?
What you do
is what you hated in me?
Though I was never free enough to.
"

That's all I think.

I've looked high and low and can not seem to find the lyrics to "What This Night Is For." Does anyone happen to have them?

Thank you.

my god!!! i wish i could've expressed what you wrote up there!!! you know, the first time i heard that song, the Syd association also came up to my mind, every line fit perfectly ... so so sad and lonely and empty, that's why i don't listen to that song very often, same reason i don't listen to jugband blues very often. i don't care who damien had in mind when he wrote that song, to me it only has one meaning. thank you for your posts

"And I die when you mention his name
And I lied, I should have kissed you
When we were runnin' in the rain

What am I darlin'?
A whisper in your ear?
A piece of your cake?
What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear?
Or your biggest mistake?"

As precise as i can make it.

"Where's Lisa?"
What?
It's not a Lyric?
The way people keep shouting it along to his songs, I thought he'd revised some of the songs. Oh bummer!

I suppose the whole of Accidental Babies summed up my life at the end of '05. You could have seen me wandering around with it playing on repeat on my iPod, looking lachrymose on public transport. Looking back that seems horrifically self-torturous!

Default Hope the first one counts!



Among the afflictions
With which I've been marked
I'm not so prententious
And not quite so dark


And so it is
The shorter story
No love no glory
No hero in her skies



But ye can't make me happy
Quite as good as me..
Well...
You know that's a lie


She lives with an orange tree and a girl that does yoga



I had to add the last quote because I sing it to my friend who is staying with me at the moment. I have a lot of fruit trees (orange included) and she always nags me to do yoga with her. I only pick the dead oranges up because my dogs eat them!

Best Damien Rice lyrics ever;


There is a rusty light on the pines tonight
sun pouring wine, lord, or marrow
down into the bones of the birches
and the spires of the churches
jutting out from the shadows
the yoke, and the axe, and the old smokestacks and the bale and the barrow
and everything sloped like it was dragged from a rope
in the mouth of the south below

she turns, she pulls a smile, we drive her round, and she drives us wild.

Nothing is taking me down, down, down...

"Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to cry
So come on courage!
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall
And I don't want to scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know"

This one pretty much.

Also the "I wanna hear what you have to say about me. Hear if you gonna live with out me. I wanna hear what you want. What the hell you want?!"
